Using the stock kernel, no need to change the CPU frequency governor, and I'm getting half the latency with that I did in Windows 7 with no xruns and get approximately 30-35% more CPU (with apples-to-apples test projects done in Reaper, Linux version compared to the test I did in the Windows version)....
The previous version of MX Linux: I had to set the CPU frequency governor to "performance". With the current verison though, now it throttles "invisibly"/instantly with no problems at all.
I'd tried Liquorix kernel and all it did for me was increase my CPU use a bit. The stock kernel works just as well for low latency if not better.
It turns out that I was wrong about my MX Linux install having no tweaks. Installing qjackctl had automatically added my user name to the RT group and set it for high priority.
Haven't tried it and probably won't either but since it just popped up elsewhere on a screen close to here...MXStudio - unofficial respin
